A judge has issued an arrest warrant for Jovan Clayton after the rapper failed to turn himself in to begin a four-month jail sentence.

The Rej3ctz star pleaded no contest to receiving stolen property stemming from an arrest in April (14) amid accusations he had taken more than $2,000 (£1,177) worth of alcohol and personal items from revellers at a Los Angeles nightclub.

Clayton was handed a 120-day prison sentence and three years probation, and he was ordered to surrender himself to authorities on Friday (15Aug14) to begin his stint behind bars.

The hip-hop star-turned-actor did not show up by the deadline, so a judge in California has now issued a bench warrant for his arrest, according to Tmz.com.
